After my last post I came down with a headache. Which followed up with a toothache. Then waves of stabbing pain, which hurt so much I simultaneously cried and had to stop myself from vomiting whilst passing out. By Friday, it was so unbearable I knew I needed to get in with the emergency dentist. So off we went, only to be told they couldn't figure it out. The pain was too general, it was so widespread I could not pinpoint which tooth was the offender. So they prescribed some antibiotics and pain killers, and I called my regular dentist for an emergency appointment. I would have went to them in the first place, but there was no way they were getting me in on a Friday like that. No. way.
So after a weekend of antibiotics/pain killers I was able to isolate which tooth hurt (rather than my whole jaw being on fire with pain). Looks like it became abscessed... yay me. They went ahead and drilled a hole into it today (basically the start of a root canal), to help it drain and relieve some of the pressure. After the Novocaine wore off, I've been feeling much better. Even my intense migraine has subsided a bit. THANKFULLY. I swear, I was starting to lose it from the pain. I have to call tomorrow to schedule the root canal, but for now things are a little easier.
Seriously, my luck is going to change soon right? We have got to be turning the corner!
